Easy Halloween Costume for an Infant: Oscar the Grouch

Oscar the Grouch is a beloved character with a love of grumpiness and garbage. But we love him because he’s happy being him. Here’s how to make your own grouchy costume.


  • Green knit cap
  • Googly eyes
  • Brown pom poms
  • Black felt
  • Red felt
  • Black fabric marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Army green onesie
  • Army green pants
  • Stroller
  • Gray blanket

Step 1: Glue Googly eyes to front of hat. Glue pom poms over eyes to make bushy eyebrows.
Step 2: Cut a semi-circle out of black felt to make mouth. Cut a smaller semi-circle out of red felt to make tongue; glue red felt to black felt; glue black felt onto hat below eyes.
Step 3: Put on outfit: green onesie, green pants and cap.
Step 4: Put baby in stroller and cover with gray blanket (aka the trash can).
